Morning Shift

A Look At The Making Of WBEZ's 'Making Obama' Podcast

You heard Making Oprah, and the story of the media mogul's humble reporting beginnings in Chicago to her rise to the top. Now you can hear about how Chicago shaped another national icon.

In Making Obama, dozens of people who were instrumental in the rise of Barack Obama from fledgeling community organizer to the national stage weigh in on his journey. 

WBEZ’s Jenn White and Colin McNulty are two of the folks behind the production. They stop by Morning Shift to talk about what it took to collect more than 50 interviews, and what it took to land the big interview with the country's first black president.
